I agree. This is one shot that should be cropped tighter. I would crop in from the right to get rid of the C and also the shoulder (or whatever) that is in front of the lady in the bus. Then, to get back to a less-skinny rectangle, you could probably crop some off the bottom, keeping just enough of the hand to complete the image.
P.S. Even Russ agrees (somewhat), although he prefers the euphemism "pull" to the more drastic word "crop."
